Changes that occur during the autumn season are especially interesting for early learners. Kids can collect red and yellow leaves for a collage, carve silly faces in giant pumpkins, or wash carrots pulled from the ground in a backyard garden.
You can easily provide outlets for creative sensory play with hands-on experiences that engage both gross motor and fine motor skills.
These activities can include:
- jumping in a pile of leaves for gross motor exercise
- harvesting and tasting ripe tomatoes for tactile and taste experiences
- painting with pumpkin pieces to engage fine motor and creative skills
Kids can have fun weighing apples, gathering leaves, making fall crafts and more in this exciting roundup.
Activities are grouped to include arts and crafts, science, harvest (including some music!), and sensory play.
